HAPPY NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK!!

To quote our president’s proclamation:

People of all ages can volunteer, and anyone can, through the smallest of acts, do their part to improve the lives of others. This week, we celebrate the selfless individuals around our country who channel their civic virtues through volunteerism, and we encourage more people to make service an integral part of their lives.”

Volunteers help drive our country’s progress, and day in and day out, they make extraordinary sacrifices to expand promise and possibility.  During National Volunteer Week, let us shed the cynicism that says one person cannot make a difference in the lives of others by embracing each of our individual responsibilities to serve and shape a brighter future for all.

I want to thank all of our volunteers at The Shepherd’s Center of shaun-the-sheep-pyramidRichmond for their dedication, energy, encouragement, creativity and excitement.  Together, we continue to make Richmond a more caring community for older people – Julie

  1. I feel very fortunate to be one of the Shepherds who enjoys Open U so much as well as having the opportunity of meeting folks as a driver, and working on various Board opportunities. Richmond is fortunate to have such a resource for its older citizens.
